I have a vast interest in physical activity, circadian rhythms, mammary gland development, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) metabolism. I have a diverse background in several different research fields, specifically as an applied and basic research scientist in the disciplines of exercise physiology and toxicology. I enjoy studying how the body reacts in a physiological sense to environmental contaminates such as phthalates and PAHs. In addition, I have a master’s degree in Clinical Exercise Physiology and have applied research experience working with clinical populations in Cancer Rehabilitation, as well as exercise testing and prescription of college athletes.
